Topic: Cannot connect to ipad

HI,
I got my drone today but it will just not connect to my ipad, i can find it in the wireless network list but when i try to connect sometimes i get the wifi symbol to say its connected and sometimes i dont? even when it does show the wifi symbol if i run the freeflight app it says "Wifi not available, please connect your iPad to your AR.Drone"
its set for DHCP and the ip address showing on the ipad is 169.254.78.104 the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0

any help will be appreciated

Problem solved it was a video sender causing the problem once it was uplugged the drone connects and works fine.

Re: Cannot connect to ipad

when you say "video sender" - what do you mean?  I'm having the same issue.

Re: Cannot connect to ipad

Re: Cannot connect to ipad

I switch between my droidx and iPad. For the iPad I just hook up the drone battery, go to my iPad settings,  then wifi settings, search and connect to the drone, then I go ton free flight app and everything just works. I do the same for the droidx.
